francisco see not only what the military can bring to the party and help us with, not only how we can interact with the military, but also we say to ourselves, it's also up to us to do everything we can for ourselves. we're not kind of an outfit, it's easier for them to collaborate with us. so, all of these things are important to us as we have these exercises. so, i say this is a very worthwhile enterprise that will keep going. i tip my hat to my friend mike who really has been leading us in these efforts. and now i say as also the slogan, i guess you call it this morning, maybe it's what the navy says. i think it's a very good phrase. a global force for good. that's what we've been practicing, a global force for good. thank you.

savidge takes us through the ultimate holiday nightmare. >> fun in the sun, that's the promise of the carnival triumph, and with lots to offer, a casino, disco, spa, swimming pools, all you can eat, passengers expected plenty when departing galveston last thursday. on sunday morning, the moment of crisis. in a flash, a fire breaks out in one of the ship's two engine rooms. a passenger shoots this cell phone video. at first, the thousands aboard don't know the ship is crippled. adrift in the middle of the gulf of mexico. but by day's end, it's obvious this virtual floating city is almost completely powerless with nothing but back-up generators. passengers find themselves without hot water or working toilets, and eventually, without enough to eat. you can hear the desperation in the calls from the ship. >> it takes three and a half hours to get food. the smells -- i can't even describe them. there is sewage, raw sewage. pretty bad. you walk in the hall way, you have to cover your face. we don't have any masks for breathing. >> dead in the water, all anyone at sea or on land can d
for us to work together on some of these common issues and figure out how our agencies are all going to integrate. i think the time and effort that has been expended by both the military planners and also the civilian planners is definitely going to be bearing fruit in years to come when something happens. i know we are quite a bit ahead of time, you are going to have a 20-minute break from now and then our next speaker will come up at that point. thank you again. he heads the baur row of medicine for the navy. i lacked at his bay oh in the program, educated in georgia and he's had a great career in the navy commanding several hospitals, winning several awards and his most recent command was as the commander of walter reed, and i was so glad that he was here to hear the panel that we had with our medical peer to peer exercise. and he's going to talk to us now about navy medicine. with that, please help me welcome vice admiral matthew nathan. (applause). >> thank you, general, very much. well, it's a pleasure here and i'm honored to be able to speak in front of such a distinguish
large and those are of particular interest to us. >> this has been a successful program and we have retired the majority of risk associated with an asteroid impact in the near future. >> reporter: nobody saw the russian meteor coming. when it did, it released 20 times as much energy as the atomic bomb dropped on hiroshima in 1945. no wonder nasa is keeping a closing watch for anything like it headed our way. at this moment, that near miss asteroid is now on its way out of the earth moon system. at 4 a.m. tomorrow, it will head outside the orbit of the moon. you can't see it without a powerful telescope. the magnitude is just about 7.4 well beyond naked iviesibility. but they will have telescopes at nasa you can watch it online. in the meantime, elizabeth, i have to tell you, what an extraordinary coincidence. we are sitting here waiting for this big near miss asteroid and then the real thing actually smashes into russia and it doesn't only smash into russia. it smashes as the biggest fall in 100 years and that last one in tunguska in 1908 was only
a very timely reminder, a reminder of why it is important for us to keep scanning the skies. >> all of this is a wake-up call. the asteroid that was much larger did pass us by. when it comes to protecting ourselves, there is not much we can do. bbc news. >> for more on today's events, i spoke to a chemist at the smithsonian in washington. what is going on out there? first of all, you have this need your read, and then you have this asteroid. >> absolutely, a very busy day. i think it is unprecedented. a really truly interesting day, to have them passing so close that it is actually visible, and then to have this media right in russia. it is a special day. >> what is causing it? we did not know any of this was coming? >> no, we were actually caught a bit by surprise. we had about a one-day warning that the meteorite was approaching. >> how much danger are we actually in? it seems like it is only a mountain of time -- only in amount of time before something happens. >> the good news is that the vast majority of the material burns up in the atmosphere. it actually produces those beauti
down that cabin to get mr. dorner out. the tear gas canisters that we used does generate a lot of heat, we introduced those canisters into the residence and a fire erupted. >> there are also questions about why authorities couldn't find dorner when he had been hiding right under their noses. the cabin where he was holed up was just across the street from one sheriff's command center, and only two miles from another. as the showdown ended there were no celebrations. as thoughts turned to grieving families. >> a lot of people loved mike. and i knew i would have support no matter what. but i really did not realize the sheer scale of this, and how many people are touched by his life. >> sadness that four lives were taken. but relief that christopher dorner's reign of terror has finally ended. >> tight, triumph and tragedy onboard the nightmare cruise. harrowing stories from inside the crippled ship. >> we have been kept in the dark a lot. >> from the first signs of trouble to the fears they would never come home, and our exclusive with the sick passenger who was rescued at sea. >> it was h
's what i've got to ask, half the size of a football field, had it hit us, catastrophic? >> oh, yeah. regionally catastrophic, no doubt about it. you saw what happened with that astroid in russia, the size of a large boulder. this one was much larger. it would hit with much more energy. and the energy has got to go somewhere. and in an air blast, there's heat, there is the posts of a compressive wave, basically a shock wave that can level buildings. you don't want that to happen over a city. and we're happy that most of our surface is ocean and most of earth's land is not inhabited. so you just sort of, you know, count your chances every time this happens. which is why i don't want to run away from these things. i want to deflect them. it would be nice if we had funding to do such a thing. but no such program in the world exists. >> that's another discussion. i could talk to you about this all day. we appreciate you coming by. >> excellent, thanks for having me. >>> it's a good night tonight. finally for some 4,000 people trapped aboard a crippled carnival cruise liner for the past f
